I wrote several HTML 'sites' for class projects that were placed on 'A' drive diskettes. Now, nobody has computers with 'A' drives, and my new 'puter does not, either. I copied all 'A' diskettes to cd/rw disks, and then copied the cd/rw content to 'My Documents' in the new 'puter. Of course, NONE of the HTML works correctly anymore. I made changes so that all HTML code would be in folders in My Documents, but I am experiencing all kinds of 'not found' errors.

My question is, where should I be putting my HTML code so that I can change it once and for all? Should I copy it into a new folder in C:/Windows/Programs? If not, where SHOULD I place it so that, once code is properly modified, I can just copy to a flash drive and transfer it to another computer?

I do presentations and class projects in HTML, as I prefer it to Powerpoint.

I appreciate any help that anybody could provide. Thanks in advance.

Are the links in the code relative or absolute?

my guess would be u are refering to pictures not showing up,
if this is the case, simply open the html file in notepad and use edit/find 'img src='

change the source.

if this isn't the case and prehaps you have checked this, ive found sometimes html files corrupt easily, especially in floppy disks which are less stable (i presume 'A' drive is a floppy drive) ~ hope this helps!

Perhaps none of you have floppy drives...but certainly all of you have the internet. Perhaps you could utilize online space that you could upload your documents to and people can pull them down from there. It's certainly easier than running down a flash drive :P

You may be doing this already...but I think it's best not to put in long URL's when linking to things, especially images. Keep everything within the folder so you can move the folder without having to modify every link in every document...aka relative to the folder rather than absolute to the system (same as if you upload to a web server).

Instead of:
<img name="image" src="C:\Documents and Settings\USER\My Documents\Websitefolder\images\title.gif" alt="" />
Do this:
<img name="image" src="images\title.gif" alt="" />
But like I said, you may be already doing this and this corruption may have come from the floppy (I, as SLG, have experienced "floppication" to my HTML files before). I just figured since you removed them from the floppy and fixed them and now they're not working again...it's probably more your fault than the floppy (although, I'm a perfect candidate for anger management when I upload new things to a site and it says "NOT FOUND" or any other error...and I'm sitting there yelling at the computer saying "STUPID IDIOT ... OF COURSE IT WORKS, YOU JUST SUC- oh. I feel dumb. " ...as I find that it was just a simple mistake :P
